No idea for the id. Wonder does it change colors for what it is on, or is just that you caught it on green?

LOL!! So I have you hooked on bugs too have I? LOL!! Love your spider. We have them here and I am going to post one soon where I caught it shooting its web out. They are so tiny that one almost misses them. Is this one also about the size of a match head? I have seen them in yellow and white as well. Great shots Craig!!

Glad somebody else ID'd the spider == now I don't have to look him up. I like his green color.

Living in such wonderful places, so different from where I have lived, you might enjoy a look at The Hamlet of Gordon, Ohio. It is how small hamlets used to be and this one still exists.
